    Just for fun you should dig up an old radio and install it in the dash, complete with mic and antenna.

    I though about doing that, but couldn't find much room in the Ranger as ive already got a cb installed, and a switch panel above FM radio

    Check out Gulf Coast Avionics refurb radios. That’s usually the best deal on the 750.

    Be careful about installing aviation radios in a private vehicle. You could easily run afoul of FCC rules if you ever transmit on it. Just because airplanes in the US no longer need to have a radio station license on board, aviation radios are not CB radios that anyone can operate legally.

    I hope so, otherwise you could have asshats using handhelds to broadcast fake ATC instructions.

    Yeah.. just wondered why one would have to be more careful when installing vs. using handheld.

    Installing a radio in a car is a permanent installation vs. a handheld. With a handheld, it can be out of sight when not in use while a vhf antenna on the roof of a car is shouting out "unlicensed radio station here." How likely is the FCC to enforce the regulations is a question HAM operators might better answer.

    Unless there's repeated blatant interference, or a proven case of harm caused by fraudulent transmission(s), it's not very likely the FCC would ever even know, much less care. They're mostly busy selling spectrum for cell phone and internet services, for example: the internet service that may interfere with GPS!
